I Am Worthy, a show of original artwork by Gretchen Dreisbach inspiring awareness of abuse in all forms, will run from Thursday, July 14, to Sunday, July 24, in Suite B of the Calhoun Building, 711 W. Lake St., Minneapolis. An opening reception will take place from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, July 14. The gallery is open to the public July 15-17 and July 22-24, from noon to 5 p.m., or by appointment. Admission is free.
The shows feature an extensive body of work, including approximately 20 large paintings mostly completed during the course of Gretchen’s nine years of trauma recovery.
Gretchen is a visual artist in St. Paul who studied fine art at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the University of Minnesota. She has been making art for over 32 years and has been working out of her studio in the Dow Building in St. Paul for the past 18 years. She describes her works as visual, vibrational forms of love that are sealed within her astral body. She paints with a language of spiritual consciousness that is supported by a healing energy.
It is Gretchen’s intention to give back to the healing of humanity and the planet through her work, her love, and her knowledge. She studies many things including: art, science, and spirit/consciousness. Gretchen also does a lot of work in her daily life by going back to nature and setting an intention for healing.
This show is intended to be a traveling show to bring awareness to all types and manners of abuse. Gretchen no longer, however, claims the “victim” archetype and has lovingly sent it back to Universe, having reclaimed her personal power and moved on to manifester/channel.
